Description

访问内容的方法与装置 A method and apparatus for accessing content

本申请涉及并向日本专利申请第11-372672号要求优先权,后者提交于1999年12月28日。 This application is related to Japanese Patent Application No. 11-372672 claims priority, which filed December 28, 1999.

技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及一种将图象信息记录到媒体中的装置或一种从媒体上播放图象信息的装置。 The present invention relates to an image information recording means to a medium or playback of the image information from the media.

背景技术 Background technique

对于播放录在媒体上的图象信息的系统,其例子包括已经应用了很久的盒式磁带录像机,还有用直径为12厘米的光盘作为记录媒体的VCD。 For broadcasting system recorded in the media image information, which has been applied for a long time and examples thereof include a video cassette recorder, and a diameter of 12 cm disc as a recording medium VCD. 最近,采用同样直径的光盘但是记录容量将近7倍于VCD的DVD也出现了。 Recently, the use of the same diameter of the disc but nearly seven times the recording capacity of DVD VCD also appeared.

在DVD播放装置中,数字被分配给:所录节目(在DVD中它们被称为“标题”,而且下文将与此相同);包含在标题中的大量场景(在DVD中它们被称为“章”,而且下文将与此相同);还有帧,它是图象的基本单位。 In DVD playback devices, numbers are assigned to: recorded programs (in a DVD they are referred to as "heading", and hereinafter the same); contained a large number of scenes in the title (they are referred to in a DVD " chapter ", and hereinafter the same); and a frame, which is the basic unit of an image. 开始时,显示所需图象的提示是通过下述步骤来完成的,即:输入所需图象的标题号、章号和帧号,确定盘上的播放位置,以及从该位置开始播放图象(譬如参看日本公开专利出版号Hei 7-312737)。 Initially, the desired image is displayed prompt by the following steps to complete, that is: the desired image input title number, chapter number and frame number, to determine the playback position on the disc and start playback from the position of FIG. like (for example, see Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. Hei 7-312737).

而且,当多组附加信息(例如,“多角度”信息包含源自不同透视法的多幅图象、独立的左右声道以及诸如日语和英语的不同语言)与图象被同时录下来时,播放环境可通过选择使用哪一个附加信息来选择。 Further, when a plurality of sets of additional information (e.g., "multi-angle" information containing multiple images from different perspective, the separate left and right channels, and different languages ​​such as Japanese and English) and the image is simultaneously recorded, playback environment by selecting which one to use additional information to choose. 播放环境的选择是通过在每组信息所确定的屏幕之间进行切换和校验每组信息的内容来实现的。 Selection of playback conditions is achieved by switching the content of each information and parity information is determined between each screen. 附加信息也可以作为播放环境菜单而预先记录在盘上(例如参见日本公开专利出版号8-251531)。 Additional information may also be used as a menu of playback conditions recorded beforehand (for example, see Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 8-251531) on a disc.

上述传统技术在有些情况下是有效的,比如利用卡拉OK盘,在此,盘的制造者特意地标上数字(例如,数字按照歌曲的顺序来定),而盘的文件编制等则指示出与此数字相关的意思。 The above conventional technique is effective in some cases, such as the use karaoke OK plate, in this case, the disc manufacturer intentionally marked with numbers (e.g., numbers in the order of the songs to be), and the disk files such as the preparation of the indicating and this number is related to the mean. 但是,如果用户没有文件编制而企图访问图象,那么这并不能提供有效的选择方法。 However, if the user does not attempt to access documentation and images, then this does not provide an effective selection method. 这就使得访问和搜索盘上的任意一个位置变得困难。 This allows any one location on the disk access and search difficult. 而且,要马上浏览所有的多组附加信息也是不可能的,于是选择的时间就变得很长。 Moreover, to browse immediately all the multiple sets of additional information is not possible, so the choice becomes very long time. 此外,如果信息菜单是预先记录的,则用于显示和选择信息的方法将会根据节目制造者的意图而多样化。 Furthermore, if the menu information is recorded in advance, and a method for displaying the selection information will be diversified according to the intention of the program makers. 由于每张盘涉及的方法不同,所以这是很不方便的。 Due to the different methods each disk involved, so it is very convenient.

同样,了解一个信息流(此信息流是指一系列相连场景的信息)的全部内容也是困难的。 Similarly, to understand the entire contents of a flow of information (this information flow is a series of connected scenes information) is also difficult.

发明内容 SUMMARY

所以需要克服上述传统技术的问题,并提供一种新颖的信息播放装置,利用该装置,可通过统一的操作轻松地搜索信息,还可从播放屏幕上看出和选择信息流的全部或其至少一部分。 It is necessary to overcome the problems of the conventional techniques and to provide a novel information playback apparatus, with which device can easily search information through a unified operation, and the selection can also be seen from the whole stream or at least a play screen portion.

OSD并不包括小帧本身。 OSD does not include the small frame itself. 接下来,参看图4所示的流程图,将对系统控制模块11按照选择屏幕显示程序121所实施的操作作出说明。 Next, with reference to the flowchart shown in FIG. 4, the system control module 11 will be described according to the selection screen display program 121 implemented operations. 操作从指示出DVD盘上所录图象的所有章和所有标题的播放起始位置、且被存放在RAM 13地址数据区131内的地址数据开始。 Operation proceeds from all chapters indicating playback starting positions for all titles on the DVD disc recorded image, and is stored in the address data area 13 of the RAM 131 address data starts. 地址数据的存储可在打开播放装置、放入一张盘、并且按下遥控器的播放键22之后执行。 Storing the address data may be performed after opening the playback apparatus, into a disc and press the play button on the remote control 22. 这些地址数据可不经解码器3而由缓冲2直接得到(见图1)。 The address decoder 3 via the data may be obtained directly from the buffer 2 (see FIG. 1).

在以下的说明中,盘上所存的标题号用“n”表示,而这些标题的章号则用“m”表示。 In the following description, stored on the disk with the title number "n" represents, which is the title of a chapter number "m" represents.

当用户按下遥控器201上的浏览键23时(S41),对应于屏幕上所显示的标签数目(在图3所示的情况中为4)的OSD屏幕数据可从ROM12的OSD数据122中读出。 When the user presses navigation keys on the remote control 201 23 (S41), corresponding to the number of tags displayed on the screen (as in the case shown in FIG. 4) may be an OSD screen data from the OSD data 122 ROM12 read out. 它被转换成将在屏幕上显示的位图数据,并且被传递到RAM 13的OSD工作区132(S42)。 It is converted into bitmap data to be displayed on the screen and is transferred to the RAM OSD work area 13 is 132 (S42). 然后将这些被存储的OSD屏幕数据发送到解码器3(S43)。 And sending those stored OSD screen data to the decoder 3 (S43). 解码器3将接收到的数据存放在显示屏幕区401(S44)。 The decoder 3 stores the received data stored in the display screen area 401 (S44). 此时,解码器3被告知存储在盘上的标题数和在选择屏幕上显示小帧图象的亮度级参考值。 At this time, the decoder 3 is informed of the number of titles stored on the disk and a reference value of the display luminance level in a small frame images on the selection screen. 当播放开始且亮度级增加到参考值时,相应的小帧图象便作为此章的起始帧而被用于选择屏幕。 When playback starts and the brightness level increases to the reference value, the corresponding small-frame as the starting frame image will be used in this chapter selection screen. 解码器3用获得的标题数目顺序地插入标题号,而且该数据被存储在显示屏幕区401中。 The number of header decoder 3 obtained by sequentially inserting a title number, and the data is stored in the display screen area 401. 作为表示标题号的符号,这些数字的使用只是一种方法而已。 As the title represents the number of symbols, the use of these figures is just one way only. 当然,根据目的,也可以采用其它种类的符号或者简单的标识符或名称,以便能够识别各个节目。 Of course, depending on the purpose, it may be employed other kinds of symbols or simple identifiers or names for each program can be identified.

接着,第一标题(n=1)的第一章(m=1)的地址数据从地址数据区131读出,并且被送往驱动模块1和解码模块3(S45)。 Next, the first title (n = 1) a first chapter (m = 1) address data is read from the address data area 131, and is sent to the driver module 1 and the decoder module 3 (S45). 驱动模块1从盘上与地址数据相应的播放起始位置处开始播放信息(S46)。 Address data corresponding to the playback start position of the playback information (S46) on the drive module 1 from the disc. 解码器3缩小播放信号的图象,并将小帧图象数据存放在显示屏幕区401。 A reduced image decoder 3 play signal, and the small-frame image data stored in the display screen area 401. 该小帧图象数据被存放在显示屏幕区401中预先指定的位置,以便该小帧图象被放在选择屏幕上与章号(m=1)相应的位置(图3的19a)。 The small-frame image data is stored in the display screen area 401 a pre-specified location, so that the small-frame image is selected on the screen (19a in FIG. 3) at positions corresponding to the chapter number (m = 1). 解码器3也存放着显示屏幕区401上标题1的标签的亮度增加数据。 The decoder 3 also stored on the brightness of the display screen 401 title tag data region 1 increases.

然后,将下一章(m=2)的小帧图象放到相应章号的位置(缩小的帧19b来自于同一幅图),这执行的是相似的操作,而且该数据也存放在显示屏幕区401。 Then, the next chapter (m = 2) of the small frame image into the corresponding chapter number position (the reduced frame 19b from the same figure), which is similar to the operation performed, but also the data stored in the display screen area 401. 每一章的小帧都以这种方式放在其适当的位置上,以在显示屏幕区401完成第一标题的选择屏幕(S47)。 Each chapter small frames are placed in such a manner their proper position to complete the first title selection screen (S47) in the display screen area 401.

接下来,如果用户按下光标键27来选择数字为n的标签,也即选择第n个标题(S48),那么便把此标题的章的小帧放到它们各自的位置上,且执行操作S45到S47,以便完成所选标题的选择屏幕。 Next, if the user presses the cursor key 27 to select a label number n, i.e., n-th selected title (S48), then put the small frames of the chapters of the title into their respective positions, and performing the operation S45 to S47, in order to complete the selected title selection screen.

如果用户用光标键27选择了一帧(S49),则所选帧的边线在显示时会变厚,以表示该帧被选中了。 If the edge 27 with the cursor keys the user selected one (S49), the selected frame becomes thick in the display to indicate that the frame is selected.

正如上文所述,图3示出的是n=2和m=2被选中时的选择屏幕。 As mentioned above, FIG. 3 shows a n = 2 and m = 2 is selected when the selection screen. 如果用户要看的图象便是这一章,则用户按下遥控器201上的选择键25即可。 If the user is to look at the image of the chapter, the user presses the select key on the remote control to 20,125. 这时会有一个退出选择操作的命令被送到解码模块3,而这一章的地址数据则被送往驱动模块1(S50)。 Then there will be an exit command is sent to the selection operation of the decoding module 3, and this section of the address data were sent to the driving module 1 (S50).

当收到上述命令后,解码模块3删掉OSD屏幕数据,并停止帧缩小操作。 When the above command is received, the decoding module 3 Deletion OSD screen data and stops frame reduction operations. 驱动模块1播放相应章的信息。 Drive module 1 player information corresponding chapter. 这将使此章的图象被全屏显示(S51),而操作也得以完成。 This will allow the image to be displayed full screen in this chapter (S51), and also the operation is completed.

该实施方案是提供给DVD盘的,但是本发明并不是仅限于此。 This embodiment is provided to the DVD disk, but the present invention is not limited thereto. 若在实现时采取的是其它记录媒体,而其中预先存储了标题数据,则本发明也能提供相似的优点,例如,采用其它类型的盘和磁带,以及存储器之类的半导体记录媒体。 If the implementation is adopted in the other recording medium, and wherein the header data stored in advance, the present invention can also provide similar advantages, for example, other types of disks and tape, and semiconductor memory recording medium.

同样,上述选择屏幕与用于记录标题数据的是什么记录媒体无关。 Similarly, the selection screen for recording title data recording what is media independent. 因此,本发明允许用户采取公用的一组操作来选择要看的节目。 Accordingly, the present invention allows the user to take a common set of operations to select the program to see.

而且,用户能够浏览标题的多个章,标题也能够用按键进行快速选择。 Also, the user can browse the title of multiple chapters, titles can quickly select a button. 于是,盘上所存节目的所有内容或其至少一部分内容可以很容易地知道。 Thus, all the contents on the disc stored program content or a portion thereof can be easily known at least.

在本发明中,利用多个缩小帧和按键操作来选择帧的装置也可应用于播放环境的选择,例如:多角度帧的选择,音频播放和语言的选择等。 In the present invention, using the reduced frame and a plurality of key operation to select the frame playback apparatus may be applied to selected environments, for example: selecting selected language audio playback and multi-angle frames, and the like. 章内的多角度帧是由节目制造者提供的。 Multi-angle frames within chapter is provided by a program maker. 在这种情况下,多角度特征的可用性被显示在章的帧中,而多角度帧的地址数据是从盘上输出的。 In this case, the availability of multi-angle feature is displayed in the chapter frame, multi-angle data and the address frame is outputted from the disc.

如果用户看到显示出来的多角度选项,而且按下遥控器201上的多角度键28(见图2),选择屏幕显示程序121便用多角度图象取代这一章,并且执行操作S41到操作S51以安排和显示多个缩小了的多角度帧。 If the user sees the multi-angle option displayed and presses the multi-angle key 201 on the remote controller 28 (see FIG. 2), the selection screen display program 121 will be substituted with multi-angle images of this chapter, and performs operation S41 to operation S51 to arrange and display multiple reduced multi-angle frames. 图5所示便是这类帧的一个实施例(选择帧)。 Figure 5 is an embodiment of such frames (selection frames).

用户用光标键27来选择要看的多角度帧(被粗线框住),并且按下选择键25。 The user with the cursor keys 27 to select depends on the multi-angle frames (the frame is roughened to live), and press the Select key 25. 则选中的帧会以全屏的方式播放。 The selected frames will be played in full-screen mode.

就选择播放环境而言,当盘开始播放时,各种播放环境的数据也被输出,这样,在屏幕上可显示多种环境,并可采用上述方法来选择它们。 For the choice of playback conditions, when the disc begins to play a variety of data playback conditions are also output, so that the screen can display a variety of environments, and they are selected by the above method.

图6示出了一种选择屏幕的实施例,其中播放环境的选择包括选择多种音频。 FIG 6 illustrates an alternative embodiment of a screen, wherein selecting comprises selecting a playback multiple audio environments. 根据音频信息的类型来显示不同类型的音频。 Depending on the type of the audio information to display different types of audio. 单个屏幕能显示从盘上获得的一组音频信息的类型,而且能很快地选中所需的音频信息类型。 Type single screen can display a set of audio information obtained from the disc, but also audio information can quickly select the desired type. 在图6中,列出的音频信息的类型有MPEG、Dolby AC3和两种线性PCM系统,它们都是DVD盘音频格式的国际标准。 In FIG. 6, the audio information types are listed in MPEG, Dolby AC3, and two kinds of systems of linear PCM, which are international standards of DVD disk audio formats. 此图中选中的是Dolby AC3。 This figure is selected Dolby AC3.

接着,当按下选择键25时,播放的便是Dolby AC3音频了。 Then, when you press the select button 25, the playback of the audio is Dolby AC3.

此外,本发明的装置能用来显示播放环境选项的小帧图象,以取代显示这些播放环境选项(例如,音频格式,语言,播放模式),因而允许用上述相同的简单操作方法把不同的播放环境列出来和进行选择。 Further, the apparatus of the present invention can be used to display small-frame image playback environment options to options instead of displaying these playback conditions (e.g., audio format, language, playback mode), thus allowing the same manner as the above-described simple operation of the different play environment listed and selected.

<实施方案2> & Lt; embodiment 2 & gt;

在图7的实施方案中,信息记录的容量被加到播放装置上。 In the embodiment of FIG. 7, the information recording capacity is added to the playback apparatus. 记录的信息可以用与实施方案1相似的选择操作来播放。 Recording information can be used to select the operation of an embodiment similar to play. 为了简化附图,图中用于播放的结构被删掉了。 In order to simplify the drawing, the structure for playing figures are deleted.

在该实施方案中,程序被加到选择屏幕显示程序121中,以便让系统控制模块9保存记录数据。 In this embodiment, the program is added to the selection screen display program 121, so that the system control module 9 save recording data. 此外,为ROM 12中采用一个可写的存储器,且ROM 12中包括一个用于存储记录数据的记录数据区123。 Further, the ROM 12 employed as a write memory, and the ROM 12 includes a data area for recording recording data 123 is stored.

在用摄像机记录图象时,来自摄像机74的图象信号被图象A/D转换器72转换成数字图象信号。 When recording an image by the camera, the camera image signal from the image converter 74 is 72 A / D converter into a digital image signal. 而从传声器75进来的音频信号也被音频A/D转换器73转换成数字音频信号。 But I may also be an audio A / D converter 73 converts the audio signal coming from the microphone 75 into digital audio signals. 这两种数字信号被编码器71编码,然后由驱动模块1记录在一张盘上。 Both the digital signal encoding by the encoder 71, and then recorded on a disk by the drive module 1. 记录操作在按下遥控器201上的记录键30后开始。 Recording operation after a recording start button 30 is pressed on the remote control 201. 记录从盘上何处开始是由从盘上读出的地址数据亦即位置信息指定的。 Where to start recording from the disc is designated by the address data that is read from the position information on the disc. 系统控制模块9将地址数据存储在记录数据区123。 The system control module 9 stores the address data in the recording data area 123.

如果要把这些图象组成为标题和标题中的章,则标题起始位置的地址数据也被存下来。 If you want the images consisting of the title and chapters in the title, the start position address data of the title is also survive.

记录数据区123的内容在播放开始时与地址数据区131的内容相似。 Content data recording area 123 is similar to the content address data area 131 when playback starts. 当执行播放时,使用来自记录数据区123的数据,而且执行实施方案1的操作S41到S51,于是,允许以与实施方案1相似的形式观看图象的选择。 When playback is performed, using the data 123 from the recording data area, and perform an implementation of operations S41 to S51 1, then, in order to permit viewing of an image similar to the embodiment 1 in the form selected.

存放在记录数据区123的数据可以立刻记录到盘上的未用区域。 Stored in the data recording area 123 of the data may be recorded to the unused area immediately on the disk. 如果此盘要在不同的信息记录/播放装置或信息播放装置上播放,那么,通过提供经修改的选择屏幕显示程序121,然后从盘上获取记录数据,便能产生与上述一样的选择屏幕。 Playback device or information playback device, if the disk to be in a different information recording / playback, the display program 121 by providing a modified selection screen, and then acquires data from the disc recording, will be able to produce the above-described selection screen and the like.

<实施方案3> & Lt; embodiment 3 & gt;

在诸如MPEG1和MPEG2这些被宣布为国际标准的图象压缩/编码系统中,创建的视频有三种场帧:I-图片,P-图片和B-图片。 Such as MPEG1 and MPEG2 which has been declared as an international standard image compression / encoding system, a video created three field frames: I- picture, P- pictures and B- pictures. 其中,I-图片的压缩和编码完全在帧的内部进行,而且能够作为静态图象独立存在。 Wherein, I- pictures are compressed and encoded entirely within the frames, and can exist independently as static image. I-图片可从解码模块3得到。 I- picture obtained from decoding module 3.

图8是该实施方案提供的选择屏幕的一个实施例。 FIG 8 is the embodiment of the selection screen provides an embodiment. 日期显示在标签里,来自于1月1日视频节目中大量信息流的第一I-图片被缩小了,并作为表示小帧来显示(S1-S9)。 Date on the tag, from January 1 video program information a plurality of first I- picture stream is reduced and displayed as representative small frames (S1-S9). 第4个表示小帧S4被显示出来。 Fourth representative small frame S4 ​​is displayed. 按下选择键25便可观看此帧,且该信息流随后便象在实施方案1中那样从开始处全屏播放。 Press the Select key 25 can view the frame, and this information will then flow as in Embodiment 1 above from the beginning of the full-screen playback.

存放在记录数据区123内的不同类型的数据可被记录在盘上剩余空间里。 The data stored in the recording area 123 of the different types of data may be recorded in the remaining space on the disc. 如果此盘要在不同的信息记录/播放装置或信息播放装置上播放,那么,通过提供经修改的选择屏幕显示程序121,然后从盘上获取不同类型的数据,便能产生与上述一样的选择屏幕。 If the disk to be played back on a different information recording / playback device or information playback device, the display program 121 by providing a modified selection screen, and different types of data acquired from the disc, as described above will be able to generate selection and screen.

而且,遥控器201上的按键可放在摄像机的侧面或后面。 Also, buttons on the remote control 201 may be placed on the side or rear of the camera. 这将使得摄像机易于使用。 This will make the camera easy to use.

<实施方案4> & Lt; embodiment 4 & gt;

下面是一种实施方案的描述,其中采取用户选择的帧作为信息流的表示小帧,而不是象实施方案3采用I-图片。 The following is a description of an embodiment, wherein the frame selected by the user to take as the representative small frame information stream, rather than as embodiment 3 uses I- picture. 在记录了大量的信息流并在盘上形成了视频节目之后,这些信息流便被播放。 After recording a lot of information flow and the formation of a video program on the disk, the information flow will be played. 若要显示用户想将其用作表示帧的帧,便按下遥控器201上的选择键25。 To display the user wants to be represented as frames, press the Select key on the remote control 20 125. 从信息流播放开始到选择键25被按下的这段时间可以用通常装设在信息记录/播放装置内的计时器测出来。 Starting from this time to the stream playback selection key 25 is pressed can be generally installed in the information recording / playback apparatus within the timer measured out. 这个时间提供的数据可用于提取表示小帧。 This time data can be provided for extracting representative small frame.

在该实施方案中,选择屏幕显示程序121是从实施方案3的程序修改得出的,以便由系统控制模块9来完成下面的操作。 In this embodiment, the selection screen display program 121 is a program from the embodiment 3 of the obtained modified so as to complete the following operations by the system control module 9.

在记录时,需用作表示小帧的帧的上述时间数据被存放在记录数据区123或盘上一个预先指定的未用区域。 When recording, the time required as indicating that the data frame is stored in a smaller frame area 123 or recording data on a pre-specified disk unused area. 在播放期间,利用存于记录数据区123或盘上未用区域内的数据来读出表示小帧,并在选择屏幕上显示。 During playback, using the data stored in the recording area is not within the data area is read out on the representative small frame or disc 123, and displayed on the selection screen.

这些表示小帧不必都由用户来选择。 These represent a small frame does not have to be selected by the user. 一定的信息流可采用I-图片,而用户则能指定用哪种方法。 I- stream may be employed in certain picture, the user is able to specify which method to use. 如果所有的表示小帧都要由用户来选,当然可以采用不生成I-图片的压缩/编码系统。 If all the representative small frames have to be selected by the user, of course, does not generate the I- picture compression / encoding system can be employed.

<实施方案5> & Lt; embodiments 5 & gt;

在下面所描述的实施方案中,对于每个信息流,用户都提供一个独立创建的静态图象或字符图象以作为该信息流的表示小帧,而且将之记录在盘上。 In the embodiment described below, for each stream, the user provides the static image or character image to create a separate stream as the representative small frames of the information, but also the recording disc.

除了在摄像机上采用静态图象模式外,静态图象还可用专门的静态图象摄像机(例如电子静止摄像机)、扫描仪等来产生。 In addition to using a static image mode on a camera, but also still picture camera with a special still picture (e.g., electronic still camera), a scanner or the like is generated. 字符图象则可由键盘输入产生。 The character image may be generated by a keyboard input.

在该实施方案中,大得足以存储静态图象或字符图象的区域被设定在记录数据区123或盘上的未用空间内,此外还建立一个表格,以便将静态图象或字符图象和它们相对应的信息流联系起来。 In this embodiment, large enough to store the static image or character image region is set in the data recording area on the disc 123 or the unused space, also creates a table, so that the static image or character in FIG. elephants and their corresponding flow of information linked.

在该实施方案中,选择屏幕显示程序121是从实施方案3的程序修改得来的,以便由系统控制模块9来完成下面的操作。 In this embodiment, the selection screen display program 121 from the program of the embodiment modified from 3, the following operations to be done by the system control module 9.

在摄制了一个由大量信息流组成的视频节目之后,为信息流创建静态图象或字符图象,并将它们存放在上述未用区域里。 After we filmed a lot of information by the streams of video programs, create a static image or character image as the flow of information, and store them in an unused area in the above. 此时,该区域被置为数据等待状态,以便能将数据存储到上述表格里。 In this case, the data region is set to the standby state, able to store data in the above table. 接着,如实施方案2所述,播放该盘,并显示相应视频节目的选择屏幕。 Next, as the embodiment 2, the disc player, and displays the corresponding video program selection screen. 在这些信息流的小帧里作出一个选择,并按下选择键25。 Make a small selection of these frames in the stream, and the select button 25 is pressed. 如果是在数据等待状态有效时按下选择键25,则信息流并不播放,而是把在帧选择中得到的信息流的起始位置地址数据送到等待状态有效的区域。 Pressing the select key 25, it does not play the stream, but the flow of the start position information in the obtained address data to the frame selection waiting state if the effective area in the data wait state is valid. 该地址数据被存放在上述表格里,以作为把信息流与静态图象或字符图象联系起来的数据。 The address data is stored in the form described above, as the information flow and the static image or character image data link. 然后,该区域便从数据等待状态中释放出来。 Then, the data region begins in the waiting state is released.

利用这种方式,通过把每个信息流与静态图象或字符图象联系起来而完成此表格。 In this way, this form is completed by each information flow and static image or character image linked.

在播放期间,读出信息流的地址数据。 During playback, the read address of the data stream. 所述表格被用来提取与数据相联系的静态图象或字符图象,然后将它们作为表示帧来显示。 The table is used to extract the static image or character image associated with the data, which are then displayed as a representative frame.

当然,在该实施方案中也是一样,压缩/编码系统可以采用不生成I-图片的方法。 Of course, this embodiment is the same in the embodiment, the compression / encoding system method does not generate the I- picture can be employed.

<实施方案6> & Lt; embodiment 6 & gt;

下面描述的是大量的信息流组合在一起并从该组信息流得到单个表示小帧的情况。 Described below is a lot of information combined together, and the set of information obtained from a single flow shows the case of a small frame. 在这种情形下,这组信息流形成一个子节目,而大量的子节目又形成一个单独的视频节目。 In this case, the set of streams forms a sub-program, and a large number of sub-programs and the formation of a single video program. 换句话说,由信息流、子节目和视频节目组成一种分层结构。 In other words, the information stream, the sub-programs and video programs constituting a hierarchical structure.

在该实施方案中,每次形成一个子节目时,便把符号提供给子节目,而且播放子节目中的信息流,以允许用户选择一个表示小帧。 In this embodiment, each forming a sub-program, sub-symbols to put the program, and displays the sub-program stream to allow the user to select one representative small frame.

该实施方案的选择屏幕显示程序121是从实施方案3的程序修改得来的,以便由系统控制模块9来完成下面的操作。 This embodiment of the screen display program 121 is selected from a modified procedure of Scheme 3 come, so as to complete the following operations by the system control module 9.

盘的播放同实施方案2所述的一样,并且显示出视频节目的相应选择屏幕。 As with the embodiment of the disk player of claim 2, the selection screen and shows the respective video program. 接着,建立被指配给将要形成的子节目的符号。 Next, the establishment of a sub program to be assigned to a symbol formed. 用户可选择的符号是数字、时间或日期、事件、地点等。 User-selectable symbol is digital, time or date, event, location and so on. 而符号数据由用户通过按键输入符号来决定。 And symbol data is determined by the user through the key input symbol. 接下来,用户从选择屏幕上选出将被包含在子节目里的信息流,并按下选择键25。 Next, the flow of information selected by the user to be included in the sub-program in the selection from the screen and press the Select key 25. 当这些信息流的选择完成后,按两次选择键25。 When selecting these streams is completed, the select button 25 twice. 这就意味着子节目完成了。 This means that the sub-program was completed.

在子节目完成以前,视频节目的符号数据、起始位置的地址数据、子节目的符号数据、以及子节目中大量信息流的各自起始位置的地址数据等被彼此联系在一起,并被存放在记录数据区123或盘上的未用空间内。 Before the sub-program is completed, the data of the video program symbols, the starting position address data, symbol data sub program, and the start position of the address data of each sub-program in the plurality of streams and the like are related to each other together, and deposited in the unused space on the recording data area 123 or a disk. 接着,播放与已完成的子节目相对应的大量信息流,且用户选择单个的表示小帧。 Next, playback and completed sub-program corresponding to the plurality of streams, and the user selects a single representative small frame. 与实施方案4一样,该表示小帧数据是由信息流开始时间之后所经过的时间来指明的,且该时间数据与上述各项数据存放在一起。 As with embodiment 4, this representative small frame data is composed of time after the start of the flow of information to indicate the elapsed time, and the time data is stored together with the above data.

通过使用以该方式存放的相关数据,可以显示为子节目选择的帧。 By using the data stored in this manner, the frame may be displayed for the selected sub program. 这些选择帧与图8中的相似,而且图9还示出了一个实施例。 8 similar to those in FIG selected frames, and FIG. 9 shows a further embodiment. 表示小帧上的码SUB便是指明它们是用于子节目的,用户选中的小帧便在那儿显示。 SUB code represents the small frame is used to indicate that they are sub-programs, the user selects the small frame will be displayed there. 显示码可以是提供给子节目的符号,而不是SUB。 Code may be provided to the display sub-program symbols, instead SUB.

当用户选定所需的表示小帧时,子节目包含的故事将按顺序播放。 When the user selects the desired representative small frames, the story contained in sub-program will be played in sequence.

此外,上述相关数据可用来显示标签中的子节目符号。 Further, the data may be used to display sub-program symbols in tags. 对于每一个子节目,选择帧能够为子节目中的大量信息流进行显示。 For each sub-program, selected frames can be displayed as a plurality of streams in the sub-program.

当用非常大数目的信息流创建视频节目时,该实施方案是很有用处的。 When you create a video program with a very large number of information flow, this embodiment is very useful.

当然,该实施方案采用的压缩/编码系统同样可以是不生成I-图片的系统。 Of course, the compression / encoding system of this embodiment can also be employed without generating I- picture system.

相反,生成I-图片的系统也可被用作压缩/编码系统,而不是让用户去选择表示小帧,所选信息流的第一I-图片可被用作表示小帧。 Instead, the resulting I- system may also be used image compression / encoding system, rather than allowing the user to select the representative small frames, the first I- picture selected stream can be used as the representative small frame.

而且,显示表示小帧的那幅图象本身可以是一个单独的图象文件。 Further, the image display photograph showing small frames can itself be a single image file.

此外,也可以将信息流的表示小帧放在该信息流里面或者是附近,在信息流和它的表示小帧之间形成一种一一对应关系。 Furthermore, information flow may be representative small frame on the inside or near the stream, to form a one to one correspondence between the stream and its representative small frame. 然后,这些信息流的表示小帧可被集合起来以创建选择屏幕。 Then, the representative small frames of information flow may be set up to create the selection screen. 在此情况下,如果删除或添加信息流,选择屏幕可通过收集这些信息流的表示小帧来更新。 In this case, if you delete or add information flow, the selection screen may represent a small frame update stream by collecting such information. 因此,实现信息流的添加与删除比以单个图象文件的形式创建选择屏幕更加容易。 Therefore, to achieve the flow of information to add and delete easier than creating the selection screen as a single image file.

<实施方案7> & Lt; embodiment 7 & gt;

图10示出的是通过运行本发明的选择屏幕显示程序121(见图1)而得到的选择屏幕的另一种实施方案。 FIG 10 shows a display program 121 (see FIG. 1) and the other embodiment of a selection screen obtained by running the selection screen of the present invention.

在选择屏幕17中,基于盘上所存标题数的数字显示在屏幕上方的框(以下称为“标签”)18里,标题的表示帧19也被显示出来。 In the selection screen 17, based on the number of titles stored on the disk in the box above digital display screen (hereinafter, referred to as "tags") 18, the title 19 represents a frame is also displayed. 在这个实施例中,盘上有18个标题,所显示的表示帧19a-19i来自9个标题,即从标题号1到标题号9。 In this embodiment, the plate 18 has a header indicates the frame 19a-19i are displayed from the nine titles, from title number 1 through title number 9.

为了表示标题号2(19b)被选中,标题号2的显示亮度被增加(高亮度显示区62)。 Order to indicate the title number 2 (19b) is selected, the display brightness of the title number 2 is increased (highlighted display section 62).

所选标题的标题号和标题内的总章数显示在详细显示区63。 Title number and total number of chapters in the title of the selected title is displayed in the detailed display area 63.

在此例中,一个屏幕可显示4个标签。 In this example, a screen can display four labels. 在一种18个标题的显示器中,第一个标签可以被指配譬如标题号1到标题号9,而第二个标签则被指配标题号10到标题号18。 In one title in the display 18, the first tag can be assigned title number for example, title number 1 to 9, and the second label 10 is assigned title number 18 through title number. 此例中,第三和第四个标签没有显示出来。 In this embodiment, the third and fourth tags are not displayed. 当然,显示方法可做适当的改动,例如,显示标签框但不加标题号。 Of course, the display method may be adequately changes, e.g., display the tag frame but do not add the title numbers.

OSD屏幕包括标签18、显示在标签上的数字、小帧19a-19i的标题号(标题1-标题9)以及分割小帧的边。 OSD screen includes the tags 18, the number displayed on the label, the small sides of the frame 19a-19i and the title number (Title Title 1- 9) and the divided small frames. OSD屏幕并不包括小帧本身。 OSD screen does not include the small frame itself. 下面阐述系统控制模块11按照本发明的选择帧显示程序121、并参照图11中所示的流程图所执行的操作。 The following describes the system control module 11 according to the selection frame display program 121 of the present invention, and with reference to the operation flowchart shown in FIG. 11 is performed.

例如,指示DVD盘上所录图象的标题和章播放起始位置的地址数据被存放到RAM 13的地址数据区131之后,操作开始。 For example, an image indicating the title recorded on the DVD disc playback and chapter start position address data is stored in the address data area 13 of the RAM 131 after the operation is started. 地址数据的存储可以譬如在打开播放装置、放入一张盘、按下遥控器201上的播放键22之后执行。 Storing the address data may be performed for example after opening the playback apparatus, into a disc, press the play button on the remote control 20 122.

在这些操作开始时(S110),系统等待用户按下遥控器201上的浏览键23(S111)。 When the operation is started (S110), the system waits for the user pressing the browser key 23 (S111) on the remote control 201.

显示屏幕上最多能显示9个表示帧。 Up to nine representative frames can be displayed on the display screen. 因此,如果盘上所存的标题数是10或更多(S112),则会显示一个选择标题的选择屏幕(S113)。 Accordingly, if the disc is stored in the title number 10 or more (S112), selecting a title selection screen (S113) is displayed.

也可以去掉这一步分支(S113),而总是显示标题选择屏幕。 This step can also remove the branch (S113), and always display the title selection screen.

标题选择屏幕显示出一些标签,而该标签表明了显示屏幕上所显示的标题号的范围(在图10的情形下标签数是2)。 Title selection screen shows some of the labels, which label indicates the title number range is displayed on the display screen (in the case of FIG. 10 is a tag number 2).

播放开始,在选择屏幕中采用表示帧图象以作为标题的起始帧。 Playback start, employed in the selection screen as the starting frame picture represents a frame header.

当在标题选择屏幕上选定一个标题时(S114),会显示一个用于章选择的章选择屏幕(S115)。 When you select a title on the title selection screen (S114), the chapter selection screen is displayed (S115) for a chapter selection.

播放开始,表示帧图象被用作选择屏幕的章图象。 Playback starts, represents a frame image is used as a chapter selection screen image. 当在章选择屏幕中选定一章之后(S116),便播放所选的章(S117),操作完成(S118)。 When selected in the chapter chapter selection screen (S116), will play the selected chapter (S117), the operation is completed (S118).

如果在标题选择屏幕中所选的标题只有一章,则此标题可以不通过章选择屏幕而立即播放。 If you choose to screen the selected title only a chapter in the title, this title can not choose a screen play by the rules, but immediately.

如果没有选择标题或章而再按一次遥控器201上的浏览键23,该选择屏幕便被去掉,从而回到遥控器201上的浏览键23被按下之前的状态(就在选择屏幕被显示之前)。 If you do not select a title or chapter 23 and press the navigation keys on the remote control 201, the selection screen will be removed, so back to the state before the browse button on the remote control is pressed 201 23 (on the selection screen is displayed prior to).

图12所示的流程图描述的是在标题选择屏幕和章选择屏幕上执行的操作。 The flowchart shown in FIG. 12 describes the selection screen and the chapter selection screen on the operations performed in the title.

在操作开始时(S140),系统等待用户按下遥控器201上的光标键27(S141)或者选择键25(S143)。 In operation starts (S140), the system waits for the user presses the cursor button on the remote control 201 27 (S141) or the select button 25 (S143). 如果按下的是光标键27,则与光标键(上,下,左,右)相应的标题选择屏幕上表示帧的标题号、或者章选择屏幕上表示帧的章号或标签的亮度将增大(高亮度显示区),以指示那一项被选中(S142)。 If the cursor key 27 is pressed, and the cursor keys (up, down, left, right) shows the corresponding title selection screen indicates the number of the frame header, the chapter selection screen or chapter number of the frame luminance or label will increase large (highlight region) to indicate that one is selected (S142).

如果在选中第三列的标题号或章号后按下光标右移键,如果有的话则显示下一个标题选择屏幕或章选择屏幕,且高亮度显示区被设到第一列上。 If the selected title number or chapter number in the third column the cursor right key is pressed, if any, to display the next title selection screen or chapter selection screen, the display region and a high brightness is provided to the first column.

如果在选中第一列的标题号或章号后按下光标左移键,如果有的话则显示前一个标题选择屏幕或章选择屏幕,且高亮度显示区被设到第三列上。 If you press the selected title number or chapter number in the first column of the cursor left, if any, prior to displaying a title selection screen or chapter selection screen, and the highlight region is set to the third column.

如果在第一行的标题号或章号被选中时按下光标上移键,则高亮度显示区被设到一个标签上。 If the cursor up key is pressed when a title number or chapter number in the first row is selected, the highlighted display section is provided on a label.

如果在第三行的标题号或章号被选中时按下光标下移键,则高亮度显示区不会移动。 If pressed when a title number or chapter number in the third row of the cursor down key is selected, the highlighted display section does not move.

当高亮度显示区在某个标签上时如果按下光标右移键,则右边的标签会高亮度显示,而且如果右边的标签有效则显示与此标签相应的选择屏幕。 When the highlighted region on a label if the cursor right key is pressed, the label will be the right high-brightness display, and if a valid tag to the right of this label corresponding to a selection screen is displayed. 例如,如果光标从“标题1-9”移到“标题10-18”,则标题10-18的帧便会显示出来。 For example, if the cursor is from the "Title 1-9" move "heading 10-18", the subtitle frame is displayed will be 10-18.

当高亮度显示区在某个标签上时如果按下光标左移键,则左边的标签会高亮度显示,而且如果左边的标签有效则显示与此标签相应的选择屏幕。 When the high luminance region when displayed on a label if the cursor left key is pressed, the label will be left highlighted, and if the left tag valid corresponding to this label selection screen is displayed.

如果高亮度显示区在某个标签上时按下光标上移键,则高亮度显示区不会移动。 If the high luminance region is pressed on the display when the cursor move key on a tag, the highlighted display section does not move.
